Sewer Solution Extension Question

I recently purchased a Sewer Solution and need to run it about 30' to the sewer line. I was going to purchase a 25' 3/4" hose, but do not see how to connect it to the PVC fixture on the end of the 10' hose that comes with the Sewer Solution. Any suggestions?

I purchased two additional 10 foot sections from sewer solutions , and they connect together well.

Or you can use standard 1" PVC pipe and fittings to extend it. Lots cheaper. Put in fancy union fittings or just glue it together and cut it up afterward. Their extension is a bit pricy for what it is...

They also make PVC hose adapters. A few other standard PVC fittings to adapt from the 1" stuff on the sewer solution to the 3/4" ID of the adapter, and you have it. Browse the PVC pipe and sprinkler fitting aisle of the local big box home center for inspiration.

You can build darn near anything with PVC fittings and glue, IMHO

I use 1" PVC pipe and connectors to extend mine. Didn't even bother glueing them together. Works great. IIRC I had about 40' of pipe to get from where the 5'ver was parked to the sewer clean out we use for dumping.

Thanks for your input. I ended up cobbling together a PVC fitting and used 1" PVC. I was going to use 1 1/4" ID tubing so I would be able to carry it with me, but at $3.75 per foot I decided I would just camp within 10' of the sewer while on the road.

I very seldom am more than 5' from the sewer hookups in most campgrounds, quite often more like 3'. I suppose you could cut the PVC in half and carry some 5' sections and a couple of connectors.

I realize this thread is a few years old - but - I can’t see how the extensions apply...

I bought a SS kit and so far haven’t ever been 10’ from the sewer. Really wanted to use it on our last trip of this season. But - I’ll start with it next season. I bought a 10’ and a 15’ extension hose. Do I have to disconnect a hose clamp on the main SS to add the extension and reclamp it there? A little confused...and feeling a bit dense that it isn’t obvious to me....thanks for any insight you can offer....

There should be a metal Union for the two hose sections and they just slide on (with a gentle twist). Generally, the Sewer Solution shines brightest when you have to move waste a long distance or uphill. I carry a plain old Rhino hose for the everyday hookups.

Thanks - yes, I see the metal union. I just donít see how to connect it to the SS without disconnecting one of the clamps on either the end that connects to the trailer or the end that connects to the dump. The attached pictures show the extension hose with the metal union and the (non-extended) SS. The hoses on the SS are attached with hose clamps. If I twist either end of those hoses, only part of the plastic comes off leaving another part connected by the hose clamp and unable to accept the metal union in the extension. I hate being this dense - Iím just not seeing it!

And yes - I am thinking of continuing to carry both. About 20% of the time, the sewer dump is higher than the valve at the trailer. That creates a vacuum and ugly draining situation. In those cases the SS will be my preference.

Just undo the hose clamp on the end furthest from the trailer, remove the fitting, use the union to connect your second segment of hose, attach the fitting you removed in step one to the far end of the second segment. Voila, good to go.

I think I would start with the one segment, saving the second until you really need it. I only need mine at home to reach the sewer clean out...

We bought our Sewer Solution from the original company and it was possible to buy from them additional aluminum unions. I also bought an extension tube/hose.

I split the original (short) hose in half and put one union there. I cut the extension hose into segments a little over 40 inches long and put an aluminum union in the end of each. The length was determined by the depth of the hose carrier where the extra segments reside. Rather than take the end pieces off, I open the original hose at the union in its center and add in as many segments as I need.

The ends of the hose need to be heated with a heat gun or hair dryer in order to have them expand enough to accept the aluminum unions the first time.

I added a second hose carrier under the trailer so the both the Sewer Solution segments and a slinky can go with us.
